Welcome to Holy Rosary Catholic School
On behalf of our school community I welcome you to Holy Rosary Catholic School. We are a welcoming and inclusive school community where we believe all students have the right to grow to their full potential in a safe and engaging environment.
Founded on the traditions of the Dominican Sisters we continue to strive to live out the charism and ethos of our founding order in the context of the world our students are living in. We believe that we are called to care for all in our community and support the concept of social justice through our promotion of Gospel values. We value the rich cultural and social diversity that exists in our society and encourage students' greater understanding, tolerance and acceptance of others.
Following the Australian Curriculum, an extensive and inclusive learning program is offered, including that of Religious Education. Further development opportunities include student leadership, extension learning activities, learning support, daily P.E., swim programs, inter-school sport, camps, and specialist subjects of Music, Physical Education and Japanese. Information Technology plays a significant part throughout all of the teaching and learning, ensuring all students can engage and access the curriculum with success.
We value and support partnerships with parents/carers in the daily education of their children and believe that this should be founded on a spirit of mutual respect, cooperation, communication and involvement.
It is a privilege to be the Principal of Holy Rosary Catholic School and I invite you to explore our website and contact the school for further information or to arrange a tour of our school so you can experience our warm and engaging environment first hand.
In order to be an exemplary Catholic School, Holy Rosary Catholic School will endeavour to foster an environment where:
An attitude of faith, respect and trust is lived by the entire community.
We celebrate our faith, in Eucharist as a whole community.
We promote a love of learning as well as a desire and thirst for knowledge.
Each individual is valued; enabling them to reach their full potential.
